Oak Furnitureland sets out new initiatives for sustainability journey

Hardwood furniture retailer Oak Furnitureland is embarking on a series of new initiatives as it takes further steps to become a more environmentally responsible retailer.

This will also include the creation of a new head of sustainability role.

Projects will include a new tree planting partnership with One Tree Planted where 100,000 trees will be reforested by the end of 2022 in areas around the world where Oak Furnitureland sources or sells its hardwood products. In addition, initiatives with Clearabee and the British Heart Foundation will provide customers with sustainable furniture removal options to help reduce the amount of items being sent to landfill.

The company has also signed up to the BRC’s Climate Action Roadmap by committing to net zero emissions by 2040. Initiatives to help meet this ambition will include converting 75 showrooms to 100% renewable energy by the end of 2022.

Alex Fisher, chief executive of Oak Furnitureland, said: “These new initiatives show how invested we are in putting sustainability at the heart of our business model. We’re excited to continue this momentum as we welcome our first ever Head of Sustainability to the Oak Furnitureland leadership team in the new year.

“We recognise that there’s more to be done to meet our environmental responsibilities, but we are making positive changes to the way we operate to ensure our planet and our business are both able to prosper for many years to come.”
